Hello Vijay,

no worries and best of luck on your journey through the world of
InfoSec. Since you are just starting out I believe that you can do a lot
worse than start by reading "Security Engineering" by Ross Anderson. A
really great book (IMHO required reading for everyone in InfoSec) that
can give you a broad overview on what InfoSec is about. I think this
should be your first book, it covers a lot of areas so you can choose
from there what tickles your fancy and drill down from there.

Hi all,
       I am a little afraid and feeling silly to ask this here. But, I don't know any other place to do so. I am a  
Computer Applications student interested in information security. But I do not know where to start my learning from.

Could you guys kindly suggest what I should start learning first and how to proceed from there? Any online material 
and book names and references would be beneficial to me. I am from a very uneducated background and hence do not have 
any guidance from those around me.

Thank you for any replies.
